MLS Offensive/Defensive Ranks



These are Offensive and Defensive Efficiency Rankings based on Shots and Goals with penalty kicks removed.

Offensive Rank = Goals Scored / Shots Taken

Defensive Rank = Goals Allowed / Shots Allowed

Its probably not a surprise that RSL is in the upper tier of both...

I know this is only a rough idea of efficiency, but we'll see where it goes as the season goes on and more shots are taken and goals are scored.  Here are the Top and Bottom 4 teams based on the average of their offensive and defensive rank:

 

Top 4 (Best to Worst):  RSL, Rapids, Union, Revolution

Bottom 4 (Worst to Best): Timbers, FC Dallas, Crew, Sounders
